Karen J Boschee of Sun City West, Arizona (formerly Kindred and West Fargo) went home to be with Jesus and her son Eric on Tuesday, July 9, 2019 at the age of 73. She passed away after a courageous battle with Fallopian Tube cancer.
Karen graduated from Lehr High School in 1963, attended Ellendale Teachers College for one year and Valley City State University for three years where she received a degree to teach Social Studies and Physical Education. She taught in various schools and finished her teaching career at the Fargo School District.
Karen married Adam Boschee in 1966 and they had two children, Amy Marie and Eric Gordon Boschee.
She was an avid reader who enjoyed spending time at Lake Ashtabula with family and friends, being a snow bird to Arizona, playing board games with friends, following her children in sporting events, going to movies, spending time with her special granddaughter Rachael and of course her membership in the Kindred 15 Homemakers.
She was always our biggest supporter, best friend and good listener. We are all forever changed for the better for having known her and our lives just won’t be the same without her contagious laugh, sense of humor and sense of fun.
Karen is survived by her husband Adam, daughter Amy (Jim) Christensen, granddaughter Rachael Christensen, brothers Del (Carlotta) Kessler and Curtis (Daphne) Kessler, In-laws Delmar and Deloris Zimmerman, Floyd and Marlys Boschee, Shirley Brandt (special friend Dennis Blundt) and Reuben and Linda Boschee as well as many nieces and nephews.
Karen is preceded in death by her parents Ray and Lorraine Kessler, in-laws Adam and Bertha Boschee and son Eric Gordon Boschee.
There will be a Celebration of Life for Karen and Eric in North Dakota later this summer and a private inurnment will be in the Memorial Columbarium at Lord of Life in Sun City West, Az.
Memorials may be directed to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, 322 Eighth Ave. 7th FL., New York, NY 10001 or Hospice of the Valley 1510 East Flower St., Phoenix, AZ 85014.
Cremation was entrusted to Camino del Sol funeral chapel.
